Mount Pleasant Leontine Chardonnay 2013

From the Mount Pleasant Legacy range, honouring the Mother of arguably Australia's greatest winemaker: Maurice O'Shea.

Fresh cut stonefruit underpinned by tangy citrus, perhaps a little like marmalade; delicate hints of oak framework here, adding depth and spice. 

The aromatics transpose to the palate, the spice more prominent. It's medium bodied, but certainly not lacking in depth of flavour, a generous acidic line seemingly driving the wine on. Misses a beat a little towards the final third, but a good solid length and carry of flavour. 91
